Meet the Doctors

Meet Dr. Elias

Growing up in the cozy, oceanside state of Rhode Island, Dr. Elias was inspired by his family members who made a positive difference in their local communities as healthcare practitioners. His compassion for underserved children, active involvement in community outreach events, and experience in both medical and dental settings fueled his desire to pursue a lifelong career in pediatric dentistry. Today, Dr. Elias is a husband, father, and board-certified pediatric dentist who places family and integrity at the forefront of his practice. That's why he will only recommend the same care he would give his own family. Kind, lighthearted, and empathetic, Dr. Elias loves being silly with his patients and providing sincere, skillful care for Saginaw families.

Dr. Elias achieved his Bachelor of Science degree in biology at Providence College. He then earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Nova Southeastern University. Immediately after dental school, he was accepted into one the nation’s leading pediatric dental programs, Temple University Hospital, where he completed his pediatric residency. This is also where he met his lifelong partner, Dr. Christina. Dedicated to delivering the highest standard of pediatric dental care, Dr. Elias spent an additional two years of training after pediatric residency to become a board-certified pediatric dentist and diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. After becoming board-certified, Dr. Elias has been recognized for numerous awards both locally and nationally for his achievements in pediatric dentistry, including being selected as a DFW Child Mom Approved Dentist, as a Texas Super Dentist, and as America's Best Dentist.

To Dr. Elias, there’s nothing better in life than family and good food. When he’s not treating little ones at work, you can catch him alongside his wife and best friend, Dr. Christina, and their two sweet children; one-year old, Julian, and two-month old, Christian. He loves taking his little family to the park, watching movies, and exploring all kinds of foods and flavors – especially Texas barbecue. He’s also a #ProudDogDad to two twin Morkies, Tumi and Olli!

Meet Dr. Christina

Born and raised in Dodge City, KS, Dr. Christina’s love for dentistry was sparked early on in high school when she had the opportunity to work at a local dental practice. With a natural passion for kids and creating and maintaining stellar smiles, she knows she has the best job in the world as a board-certified pediatric dentist! She’s understanding, outgoing, and pours her heart into each family she cares for.

Dr. Christina achieved her Bachelor of Science in chemistry at the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk!) and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry. She then worked as a general dentist with the National Health Service Corp, healing and uplifting the underserved population with empathetic, dedicated care. After five years of practice as a general dentist, she realized the joy she had from working with children and headed back to school to specialize in pediatric dentistry. She graduated from Temple University Hospital Pediatric Dental Residency Program, received board certification by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and has been providing unparalleled dental care for kids in the Dallas Fort Worth community ever since.

Dr. Christina has received many awards for her outstanding accomplishments in pediatric dentistry. She has been selected as a DFW Child Mom Approved Dentist, as a Living Magazine Top Doc, as a Texas Super Dentist, and as America's Best Dentist. Dr. Christina has also been nationally recognized for receiving the Richard C. Pugh Award, an outstanding award that honors the top 3% of scores of the pediatric dental board examination by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Outside of her practice, Dr. Christina’s life revolves around her adorable little man, Julian, and her newborn, Christian. Her everyday activities look a lot like snacking and rocking out to Cocomelon and Little Baby Bum tunes. She knows that one day she’ll have grown up hobbies again, but probably not anytime soon. All jokes aside, her growing family is her whole world, and she wouldn’t trade motherhood for anything.
